Can you imagine Fernando Valenzuela turns 50 today November 1st? 50 years! It does not seem like it was that long ago when I was watching him play. I watched him pitched from his debut with the Dodgers in 1980.
Oh how I wished Tommy Lasorda would have used Fernando instead of Dave Goltz that October 6th 1980 extra game to break a dead tied for the National League West against the Astros.. Yes, the Astros! JoeNiekro and the Astros defeated my Dodgers 7-1
OK, back to 2010! Happy 50th birthday Fernando!! Ya te unistes al club de los cinquentones!! (you joined the 50’s club!)
Today is also All Saints Day and tomorow is
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS- DAY OF THE DEAD or ALL SOULS DAY when we celebrate the life of our dearly departed.

I am working in New Hampshire this week so I went from temperatures of 80’s LA to 30 to 40’s here. But it is so beautiful here with all the wonderful colors of fall.
Hard to get used to watching games so late but still I watched game 4 of the World Series hoping against hope that the Rangers would come back.
